Emma Willis insists she wouldn't enter the 'Celebrity Big Brother' house as she knows too much about the "smoke and mirrors" because she hosts the programme
Emma Willis wouldn't go into the 'Celebrity Big Brother' house.
The 39-year-old television presenter - who hosts the programme - insists she'd be "fine" locked in the mansion but doesn't think her husband Matt Willis would cope well.
She said: "We'd be fine as a couple but I think we'd be boring TV. We'd be terrified, so we'd just sit in a corner going, 'Oh my God, what are we doing?'
"Matt would go out of his brain with boredom because he always has to have something to do."
And Emma's co-host Rylan Clark - who previously appeared in the show - believes it would be hard for the pair to enjoy it as they know all the secrets, like where the cameras are or which mirrors are two-way ones.
He told the Daily Star on Sunday newspaper: "Presenting Big Brother is a bit like a magician's trick - we know all the smoke and mirrors.
"We know where all the cameras are, how the doors lock, how it works as a TV set. We'd be looking at the two-way mirrors and we'd know who was behind there."
Meanwhile, David Gest has been lined up to appear on the new series, which kicks off early next month.
A source told BANG Showbiz: "It's a big deal to get Gest in the house ... Now he's signed on the dotted line he's sure to be very popular with his stories about his close friends Michael Jackson and Whitney Houston and of course he has a legion of fans to get behind him from his stint in the jungle on 'I'm A Celebrity... Get Me Out Of Here!' who fell in love with his antics."
